Spring Internship Opportunity 2013
MEOKO is a 360° events and promotional agency / online magazine that specializes in cutting-edge, underground electronic music. With clients and media partners ranging from fabric, Eastern Electrics, and London Warehouse Events, to events such as Gottwood Festival, The Playground and Echo Festival, MEOKO has garnered a strong, reliable reputation in the year and a half since it has been established. As well as PR and promotion for events around London and the globe, MEOKO is also passionate about top-quality journalism and regularly hosts reviews, interviews and features on its website written by some of London’s finest journalists.
As summer fast approaches us, MEOKO is in the lookout for a hard-working, passionate individual, who has a strong knowledge of electronic music (preferably of the house and techno ilk), is organised, reliable and who enjoys social media. During a 2 – 4 month internship, you will able to network with promoters, artists, agencies, labels, press representatives, festivals, designers and many more creative types, as well as gaining an invaluable insight into the world of events.
You should possess an interest in music events and promotion as well as holding either a PR/journalism, design and creative OR sales and music background. All would be a bonus. Knowledge of Photoshop would be helpful, but isn’t necessary. Most importantly, you must have excellent people skills, be creative, be able to communicate well especially online, and above all, relish working in a fast-paced, busy, sometimes unpredictable work environment.
This role will NOT consist of making tea and doing boring admin work. It is a hands-on role, meaning getting involved in all areas of the agency from press & PR, to sales, creative writing, social media, website management, admin work and other random tasks. This is great experience for someone wanting to break into the music or events industry. The internship is NOT entirely unpaid, as travel and expenses will be covered plus we will offer regular bonus incentives and allowances where possible.
The internship will run for 2 – 4 months from late April / early May.
